DIY Toothpaste with Bentonite Clay, & Essential oils

Have you ever wondered if there was a healthier alternative to conventional toothpaste? I will show you everything you need to know to make it yourself and why each ingredient is important for tooth health. P.S. it's my very first video! More to come!

Peppermint toothpaste recipe:

For the smaller batch (1.5oz yield)- double if you want to fill a jam jar (3.5oz yield) Click the links at the bottom of this post to see each product on amazon. The current price will show- I found the cheapest options for the most product as of March, 2015.

Mix the dry ingredients first: 2 T bentonite clay, 2 pinches Real Salt, 2 pinches Xylitol

Add in the wet ingredients: 3 T distilled/filtered water, 10 drops peppermint essential oil, 4 drops tea tree oil (melaleuca) 

Mix well for a minute or two. Store in a non-metal container and make sure to use non-metal instrument to mix. 

The GoToobs I used are BPA free and last a long time, but for a cheaper storage, the Ball jam jars are great. 

Thieves toothpaste recipe:

Use the recipe above, but substitute the essential oils for 10 drops of Thieves essential oil

To purchase your own Everyday Oils kit from Young Living Essential Oils, check out my good friend's link here. I love these oils and the diffuser that comes with the kit.

Does this sound like a DIY that you want to try? Let me know what you think!
